Updated 12-15-2012 at 09:29 PM by rainbowsally (linkage to first part + parag alignment fixed)

ui-tools implementation (ui-tools.cpp)

The following changes are in the code below, but are listed in case you already have the file and want to fix it yourself (and see the context of the problem).

Changelog Dec 15 2012 (second prob)
"Unknown error" msg issued when it's not an error.

Here's the fix. Whenever we call
Code:
  ok = find_slots(...);
we need to return 'true' without acting on the return values but not return 'false'...

Tooling Up: Clickable Script Programs

Posted 12-13-2012 at 03:10 PM by rainbowsally
Updated 12-23-2012 at 05:15 PM by rainbowsally

Note: shell-exec and lq-launch (the lq version) are now included in the mc2 libLQ d/load. They are in the examples/goodies folders and can be copied directly into your ~/bin folder and should be usable immediately with no changes to your paths required.
---------------------------------------

Today's Features
  • Clickable sequential backup utility. You'll need to create a program to copy it to the directory you want to use it in. That's pretty easy, but well.. maybe not.

A Stand Alone executable QT MsgBox with Stays On Top attribute

  • How to center a window on the screen.
  • Using the short optargs to parse the options.

The msgbox utility in the 'extras' folders of the mc2 d/load (see link below) uses xmessage for the display widget. That makes it independent of QT so it can run on any computer that has the X windowing system.
